What to Expect During Your Reiki Session?
The first few minutes of your session we will have a consultation and I will give you time to let me know what you would like to work on and possibly set a goal for the day’s session. I will start by bringing healing energy down through the top of your head through your body, in and out of your feet for you to get grounded. The energy typically feels like tingling, or warmth, but for a few it is perceived as cold.
During a Reiki session, you will lay on a comfortable surface like a padded massage table, couch, bed or yoga mat in a quiet room, fully clothed, while I place my hands lightly on or a few inches over your head and body.If you like I will play soothing music quietly, as I transfer the life force through my hands. Then I will peacefully and quietly increase your vital energy, providing a boost to the body, and assisting it in improving the quality of your health, emotions, and patterns of thinking. Sometimes I may have you visualize a calm place, white light or instruct you with some deep breathing. You will find yourself drifting with thoughts and may even fall asleep. Some clients prefer to chat during the session, others prefer to concentrate on the energy and enjoy the calm. Both are fine. It's all about your personal comfort.
What to Expect After Your Reiki Session?
At the end of a session, many clients report an unusually peaceful and calm state of mind; as if they have been taking a long vacation that expanded their inner awareness and set them on a path of transformation and growth.
The immediate effects of a session can last several days. In some people, chronic or acute pain can diminish or completely vanish. For others, allergies and other infirmities disappear. Having said this, also consider that many troublesome conditions were not created overnight. Receiving sessions on a regular basis will provide deeper balancing and longer-lasting benefits. While it may happen, don't expect a recovery overnight. Healing takes commitment and time.
To prepare for your session make sure that you are well hydrated and have some water ready to drink during and after the session. Energy healing will be far more effective if you have adequate water in your system.
